It means city hall in Dutch and is the icon / landmark of Melaka. There are many souvenir shop and trishaw riders. It's always crowded. All the landmarks like Christ church, Victoria fountain are close by.
Very traditional and uninteresting presentation of some melaka histories.....for my 7 and 4 yr old....still did the job...but something newer and more sophisticated will be good to upkeep the places...which is very strategic....
Dutch Square Malacca is the most iconic part of Malacca, the first place you see on any guidebooks, brochure and map of the city. The place is uniquely recognisable by a group of bright red old time Dutch colonial buildings, built in the 1600s. You...More
The former administrive centre of Melaka, this interesting building now houses various museums and exhibitions. It was interesting to see how the history of Melaka has shaped the town, by the Dutch, Portuguese, British, Japanese.

After taking your lunch upon reaching Melaka, I suggest you take the river cruise first near the Stadhuys. Then you take a short taxi ride to Masjid Selat Melaka. After that, you can drop by Menara Taming Sari. A short walk... More
After taking your lunch upon reaching Melaka, I suggest you take the river cruise first near the Stadhuys. Then you take a short taxi ride to Masjid Selat Melaka. After that, you can drop by Menara Taming Sari. A short walk away you will reach Stadhuys (red building). Jonker Street is just over the bridge near the Stadhuys. Do go on weekends foe the crowd & fun in Jonker Street.
